The launch of the Palestinian Documentation Center in Rome, Italy was announced on January 6 with the publication of its website in Italian. The site is also available in English and will soon be available in Arabic.
The site is a repository for the archive of Palestinian political and cultural historical documents that is being developed in Rome. The center aims to preserve Palestinian memory and narrative, which has been an essential product of the struggle of the Palestinian people’s struggle over the past 70 years. The Zionist project seeks to erase Palestinian history and memory, as evidenced in the systematic destruction and looting of the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s Research Center and archives in the invasion of Beirut in 1982.
The Center will not only archive materials but also will work on public events and activities, and will launch several upcoming initiatives to encourage historical study of social and political projects related to the Palestinian cause.
The Center’s website is accessible at: http://centrodocumentazione.ps/
The “Palestinian Documentation Center” began its activities in December 2015.
